      This recipe was delicious! I didn't have the means to make fresh pesto, so I had to buy mine. I will need to try it again making it fresh!

      I made half a recipe for the two of us and oh how wonderful. We will be having this many, many times again. Served with chicken schnitzel for a great meal.

      This was very yummy but rich! I found I didn't need anywhere near as much cream, but I might have made more pesto than required as I didn't really measure the basil, just used the whole bunch. Will make again, thanks!
